Team Babbitt’s Kawasaki rider Chad Johnson took second place in his heat race and went on to finish 6th in the main. The Rhienlander, Wisconsin resident is the AMA Arenacross defending series champion and two-time title holder. Johnson has been a full time Arenacross competitor since 2001 and has arguably logged more laps on the challenging, technical layouts than any of his competitors.

Team Babbitt uses K&N products during competiton. “We dyno tested K&N air filter (KA-2506XD),” said Team Manager Denny Bartz. “The result was one horsepower gain. That is a huge amount in Arenacross racing.”

Team Babbitt’s lites rider Leighton Lilly finished sixth in his heat and eleventh overall, which was a great weekend for him at the Nutter Center.

Bartz is working on replacing the injured Kelly Smith, who is expected to sit out the rest of the season with a broken leg. Smith has raced professional since 1998. He has been a part of both AMA Motocross and AMA Supercross. He was a preseason favorite, but was ultimately unable to start the season he had hoped for. Bartz will soon announce the new rider. He is looking at some of the best talent out there for his bikes.

Team Babbitt’s next race will be Round Four in Louisville, Kentucky. The series will return to its two race weekend format on the Broadbent Arena floor.
